Every so often you get the distinct privilege of interviewing someone that is just genuinely nice, down to Earth, and (for lack of a better term) knows their crap. Seldom does lightning ever strike in the same place twice, much less in the same interview, but then again seldom do you find a pair of siblings as talented as Brea and Zane Grant (“WE WILL BURY YOU”). The brother/sister combination combined to deliver one of the absolute best mini-series efforts of the year with ‘WE WILL BURY YOU’. The title was a more than successful blend of societal undertones, sexual rebellion, political unrest, and the zombie apocalypse that came out of nowhere to solidify the names of the siblings in the minds of comic book fans worldwide. It doesn’t hurt that the two are extremely friendly with a knowledge of history and literature to match. I was extremely fortunate to speak to the two this past week, and beyond the break you can read the entire interview with the duo as we talk “WE WILL BURY YOU”, ComiCon San Diego, politics, and future collaborations. Hey, what else can you expect from the conversations between 3 history buffs? Read on for the skinny!
I’m going to go out on a very short limb here and say that, with much certainty, that “WE WILL BURY YOU” will end up in my top 10 stories of 2010 at the end of the year. Brea and Zane Grant have put together what is quite possibly the most FUN (and interesting) zombie adventure I have read in years, and with the genre in the way that it is now, that’s saying something. Inside you can read the entire first 6 pages of the 3rd issue that will be hitting stores tomorrow thanks to IDW Publishing! Read on for the skinny.
